Sony UWP-V1 lavalier mic

Recording sound in my studio using the built in Canon Vixia HF S10 (mini HD video cam) microphone was not great, the studio has bare concrete floor and brick walls that caused a noticeable before I sound proofed the studio I decided to try a lavalier. There is no "cheap" good lavalier from what I understand, there are cheaper ones but they don't work so well... I ended up getting the Sony UWP-V1, the package includes a lavalier mic, one transmitter and one receiver plus some hardware and connecting cables. I did a first test at Adorama camera store (NYC) and here is the result :) I'm pretty happy with the way it worked great right out of the box - I did read the manual...the sound is natural with room tone (some lav mics can feel too "isolated") and easy to operate!

  1. Big difference especially with the ambient noise... it sounds almost perfect maybe now its too sensitive but I'm sure there is a feature to reduce the volume of sensitivity of it. this is awesome I went out and bought the canon leather hand camera grip and im looking to get the spider holster and will get it soon. you rocking Vered can't wait to see ya again keep up the good work.

    Moses btw I finished my digital mag its on my site come check it out at

  2. That was the very FIRST time I took it out of the box, put some batts in & turned it on! I'm sure I'll learn to use it even better :)
    Some times you do get what you paid for (the cheaper Sony sucked!(Sony WCS-999 $98).

  4. How is the comfort level? You should wear it during one of your shoots and see if it bothers you. Sound quality is obviously #1 but comfort is definitely second.

  5. Just edited a little video showing the slider (posting it shortly) & was using the lav - I love it! very comfortable & had no problems using it inside my "cave" like studio(no windows), there was zero interference from the TV & radio stations in the building. The only down side is I have to turn it off when I am holding the camera, you are suppose to keep the transmitter 9 ft from the receiver.
